It took me all afternoon, but I finally figured out how to record a video and post it on YouTube. You have no idea how long it took just to figure out how to insert a title. I’m hoping that I can now get the darn thing on my own college blog.
It’s my first video so it’s definitely not polished, but I trust that I will get better as I go along. If I get the hang of it, I think chatting about college will be a lot easier than writing all the time.
In other news: I’m announcing the winners of the free copies of Debt-Free U: How I Paid For An Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, or Mooching Off My Parents. I picked two people who commented on yesterday’s post about the book. The winners are “John N” and “M.” Congratulations.
I will be sending the runners up an electronic version of my eBook, Shrinking the Cost of College.
That’s the way scholarships are supposed to work. Their purpose is to cover (a part of) the cost of attendance, thus the student would need less aid from other sources, such as grants or loans. It’s not a cash prize, it’s a scholarship.
